In fact, it has been proven that scents can change people’s moods faster than anything else and scent associations can last a lifetime. For example, the smell of apple pie gives most people a feeling of comfort as they associate it with home and their family. This is an association that was most likely created while still a child.
Clearly, scent can be a powerful tool to create a long term relationship between a company and its clients. Research has discovered that 65% of people retain a scent association for over a year, and if exposed repeatedly, it can be a lifetime. On the other hand, only 50% of people remember something they have seen and for only 3 months. However, most marketing efforts are auditory and visual, with scent being overlooked completely.
With the scent market reaching $500 million and over 100 scent-consulting companies, this is an indicator that the market is beginning to wise up to the value of creating scent associations to their brands. One of the easiest ways to do this is at events. However, creating an effective scent strategy that smoothly meshes with an event is not a simple task and can backfire.
